File upload bot talk page[edit]

There is a message on the file upload bot talk page pressing people not to use it because you don't check it. Unfortunately bots can't read that message and still try to use it. A licence template added by that bot is now deprecated and bots are now telling your file upload bot that if nothing is done about it the file gets deleted. In most of the cases the fix needed is trivial and your bot is the only entity that gets warned. I'm just an anon who happened to notice this and who will be gone in a second, but I just thought you might like to know so you can take the proper course of action. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.139.87.196 (talk • contribs) 06:30, 28 September 2009‎ (UTC)

Wiki2XML extension[edit]

Hello, I have been making use of your wiki2xml.php extension at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Wiki2xml

I have been using it for a project hosted on Drupal: http://drupal.org/sandbox/TommyKaneko/1090360

I would like to relicense the file wiki2xml.php under the GPL v2 license, and begin to maintain it independently on Drupal.org. I believe that the code will actually fork away from its current intended use.

May I have your permission to do this?

Many thanks, Tom Kaneko

[EDIT] -permission granted. Thank you.

Parliament building of Benin[edit]

Greetings,

I saw the picture mentionned in the subject on the Benin page as well as Porto-Novo page. And it is written that it is the siege of Benin Parliament. Please, note that this is wrong. The building name in French is Palais des Congrès which can be litteraly translated as Palace of Congress, but its purpose is just to host events like seminars, conference and meeting. Benin Parliament siege is the "Palais des Gouverneurs" in French. And it is located in Porto-Novo, not Cotonou. Since i'm not used to editing wikipedia articles, I think i might let you know so you can correct this.

Best regards

Gildas Jr.

Photo of inside of Cappella Palatina[edit]

Hello, Magnus.

Would it please be possible to have your permission to use your photo of the inside of the Cappella Palatina, specifically the one that shows the upper wall and part of the stalactite ceiling? I am writing a book on Norman Sicily and would really like to use this as the composition is so unusual. Thank you.

The Vernaccia pic[edit]

Hi, my name is Marco. I just would like to tell that the pic uploaded in the Vernaccia article it is not a Vernaccia from Sardinia, but (as stated on the label on the bottle) is a Vernaccia di San Gimignano. These two wines are quite different. I think the caption should be corrected. Best regards

image on wikipedia entry for margaret cavendish[edit]

Hi Magnus,

The image you uploaded on the Margaret Cavendish page in Wikipedia does not represent her. According to her biography, Mad Madge, it is an image of Mary Lucas, her sister. Is it possible to remove it? It is misleading as is. This is the link to the image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Margaret_Cavendish.jpg

Thanks!

please delete this picture, it's of me and i can't figure out how to delete it[edit]

CC-4.0 Lizenzen und CommonsHelper[edit]

Hi Magnus, nachdem das von mir angelegte Ticket MAGNUS-400 im JIRA-system leider derzeit mit System-Error und einen Stack-Trace abstürzt: Wäre es möglich die neuen CC-4.0 Lizenz im CommonsHelper mit zu unterstützen? Konkret wäre von de.wp nach commons folgende zusätzliche Lizenzen:

New cc4.0 License templates from de.wp to commons:

  • de.wp: {{Bild-CC-by/4.0}} to commons: {{Cc-by-4.0}}
  • de.wp: {{Bild-CC-by-sa/4.0}} to commons: {{Cc-by-sa-4.0}}

Mit Dank,--Wdwd (talk) 09:15, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Sollte erledigt sein. --Magnus Manske (talk) 14:54, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Danke, funkt.--Wdwd (talk) 18:38, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Wenn du schonmal dabei bist, bitte repariere die Handhabung von der deutschen Vorlage {{Bild-GFDL-Neu}}, die wird momentan kopiert und ein weiterer GFDL-user-de Baustein gesetzt. Mein Vorschlag wäre das wegfallen der gfdl-neu hier und das hinzugügen von migration=not-eligible als Parameter beim gfdl-user-de. Siehe File:Plattenspieler Top View Tonarm 2.jpg als Testlauf. --Denniss (talk)

Weiterer Fehler: innerhalb von gallery-tags wird der lokale Dateiprefix (z.B. Datei:) beibehalten anstatt auf File: geändert zu werden: Beispiel. Dies scheint alle lokalen Varianten zu betreffen. --Denniss (talk) 19:14, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Und ein kosmetischer Fehler, der aber weitere Bot-durchläufe zur Behebung braucht: CommonsHelper benutzt int:license anstatt int:license-header --Denniss (talk) 06:57, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Könntest du bitte zumindest {{int:license}}{{int:license-header}} zeitnah umsetzen? Das würde Hunderte bis Tausende von Botedits einsparen und ist einfach umzusetzen. --Leyo 20:09, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
int:license erledigt. --Magnus Manske (talk) 10:57, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
Danke! --Leyo 22:15, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Commons Commander[edit]

Hi magnus, funktioniert der nicht mehr oder stelle ich mich nur zu doof an? [1] startet zwar, es werden aber keine Kategorien angezeigt. Und hier wird gemeldet, daß die Spezialseite nicht vorhanden ist. Das kam immer mal vor aber ein paar mal Neuladen hat sonst immer geholfen. mache ich was falsch? Gibts eine Alternative? --Ralf Roleček 18:44, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Die Toolserver-Variante ist kaputt. Für die Spezialseite musst Du die Zeile
importScript('MediaWiki:Commander.js');

in Deine common.js eintragen. Habe es selber lange nicht mehr probiert, sag Bescheid, ob's noch funktioniert ;-) --Magnus Manske (talk) 19:19, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Danke! Es funktioniert. Zwar mit einigen Tagen Verzögerung aber wer weiß, was da noch aus dem Cache gescheucht werden mußte ;) --Ralf Roleček 08:43, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Diskussion auf dem Village pump[edit]

Hallo, wieder einmal ich: schau bitte einmal auf Commons:Village_pump#OAuth_Flickr2Commons_Flickrreview_tags. darkweasel94 20:14, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

OMG, screaming, horror, panic[edit]

I see that you've decided to do away with TUSC for your tool. Well, er, User:OgreBot still uses TUSC. Are you ever sunsetting TUSC?

(Strangely enough, I was able to code around the upload problems in Peachy pretty easily)

Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:23, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

I'll keep TUSC running, some of my tools still use it too. If I ever turn it off, I'll check the logs first to ensure no one is using anymore. --Magnus Manske (talk) 20:18, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

CommonsHelper-Verbesserung[edit]

Hallo, der CommonsHelper funktioniert momentan mit OAuth besser denn je. Allerding sind mir noch zwei kleinere Probleme aufgefallen. Der NowCommons-Baustein lässt sich nicht automatisch setzen, der Link erzeugt nur einen leeren neuen Abschnitt (eigentlich aber kein neues Problem). Ausserdem wäre wieder ein Link zur neu hochgeladenen Datei hilfreich, damit würden sich einige Klicks einsparen lassen. --Didym (talk) 21:59, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Magnus, auch von mir vielen Dank – die OAuth-Unterstützung ist super! :-) Den Link zur Datei auf Commons fände ich auch sehr praktisch. --ireas (talk) 22:51, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Link eingebaut. Der NowCommons-Button funktioniert für mich, siehe diesen edit. Gibt's ein Beispiel, wo der button nicht funktioniert (möglichst mit Originaldatei noch vorhanden)? --Magnus Manske (talk) 20:40, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Some suggestions for f2c[edit]

hey mate, i am a heavy user of f2c and regular upload streams consisting of thousands of images, Category:Files from Korea.net Flickr stream being one of my most recent examples. Some issues I've come across in my time that I hope you can come up with fixes for.

  1. If the file name consists of / | # the upload fails. You can use this small set as an example to try out. Is there some way that if a file has one of these characters in it, it can automatically be replaced with, say, a comma (-)? I have some extremely large streams to upload of highly valued photos, but using f2c would be impossible due to this issue.
  2. If the file name has double spaces in it, this also fails. Is there some way of eliminating double spaces?

If you could let me know, that would be great, and I'll get other minor issues to you as well. Cheers, russavia (talk) 22:39, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

You can use JavaScript to do this. After loading the files into F2C, open your browser's JavaScript console and let it evaluate the following:
var list = document.getElementsByClassName("newtitle"); for(var i=0;i<list.length;i++) { list[i].value=list[i].value.replace(/\|/g, "-"); }
This replaced all "|" with "-" in your example set for me. Of course that shouldn't prevent Magnus Manske from implementing an automatic solution, but it does work. darkweasel94 22:57, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Update after an IRC conversation with russavia: For replacing / and | and # with -, you can bookmark this URL:
javascript:(function(){var%20list%20=%20document.getElementsByClassName("newtitle");%20for(var%20i=0;i<list.length;i++)%20{%20list[i].value=list[i].value.replace(/[\|/#]/g,%20"-");%20}})();
Click on that bookmark and the filenames will change. darkweasel94 23:24, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Fixed in the tool now. --Magnus Manske (talk) 22:11, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Another symbol I see often and which also fails is : can we get that fixed too if poss. Cheers, russavia (talk) 07:46, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
I recently had to do that as well, and used the following JS in the JS console to do that (it replaces : with ,).
var list=document.getElementsByClassName("newtitle");for(var i=0;i<list.length;i++){list[i].value=list[i].value.replace(/:/g,",");}
As an explanation for non-programmers, these things always start with (you can copy this verbatim, you don't need to understand it):
var list=document.getElementsByClassName("newtitle");for(var i=0;i<list.length;i++){list[i].value=
They are then followed by what you want each filename to be. Something starting with list[i].value.replace( means: the original filename (list[i].value), where something is replaced. It is followed by a regular expression (i.e. a search term) enclosed in / and /g, a comma, and the string that the search term should be replaced with enclosed in quotation marks. Then you have );} (if you didn't use .replace(, and nothing else with an opening bracket, you have only ;}).
To build a regular expression, mostly you can simply write the search term, but behind the above link you'll find more complex constructs like the [\|/#] (which means: match | or / or #) I used above. Note how "|" needs to be escaped with a preceding backslash as a special character; that, too, is explained behind the link.
To make a bookmarklet from that, in my understanding you simply enclose your code in javascript:(function(){ and })();; a good browser (Firefox does it) should automatically replace the spaces in your code with %20 as needed in URLs. Hope this helps some people use F2C with more flexibility. darkweasel94 08:21, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Added ":" to the list. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:04, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion for wdfist-tool[edit]

Hi. Just a small suggestion for wdfist. It would be useful if P41 (flag image) could be added as one of the available "add as..." options. Largely fills the same function as the existing logo option but for organisations/countries with flags instead. /Lokal_Profil 10:16, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Done. --Magnus Manske (talk) 20:15, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks. /Lokal_Profil 10:36, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Some red thing (8237300129).jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.)

Flickr2commons suggestion[edit]

I assume it was Flickr2commons used to upload File:Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes (9451902405).jpg. I'm working through hundreds of manual Flickr reviews and find lots of images with this somewhat useless "Transferred from Flickr" message. Please change the message to something more informative like "Transferred from Flickr via Flickr2commons" or "Transferred from Flickr via Flickr2commons from (insert Flickr link here)". This would help manual reviewers a lot since the images had already been checked vs license and blacklist so no need for us to check them again.--Denniss (talk) 09:11, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

That isn't a reliable way to check if Flickr2Commons or anything else was used. Using the API, you can upload files with any edit summary you like, including one that says it was transferred using Flickr2Commons even if it wasn't. Just saying. A reliable way to check that is to look in the upload log where you'll have a tag "OAuth Uploader". I don't oppose the suggestion, just don't see how it would be of much use. darkweasel94 09:19, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I have changed the message to "Transferred from Flickr via Flickr2commons". I can't prevent others from uploading with the same comment, but at least all uploads via my tool will have this now. Other edits via OAuth have the tool/version as a tag (example), but uploads don't show this (yet). --Magnus Manske (talk) 17:24, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you have set up User:MiszaBot to archive your talk page. Unfortunately, the bot has stopped working, and given how its operator is inactive, it is unclear when/if this will fixed.
